    duh, but here’s the problem. The people are subjected to divide and conquer, which has made people incapable of organizing, solidifying or capable of bridging divides.

    In fact the guy gets it. He notes the people are fractured and she follows up by conceding my point….duh.

    Interesting that she admitted to not knowing of the Indian Communists endorsement of BDS, but perhaps now she and Palestinian civil society will reach out beyond the EU and English-speaking world.

    Here in the US, I don’t see much connection between BLM and the oppressed in other countries. I think that’s intentional on the part of BLM’s financial backers. The Black Alliance for Peace and Black is Back seem to be more aware of US foreign policy.
